Media Event Recap: iPad Air 2
During todays media event one of the new things Apple announced was the iPad Air 2. This new iPad features all of the same externals as the previous iPad Air, with a few tweaks inside. The only thing that you might notice between the two models is the new Touch ID home button. It’s also super thin, coming in at 6.1mm thick, 1.4mm thinner than the original iPad Air.
Inside we have a new A8X chip, a slightly higher end model from the A8, which is inside the new iPhones. There’s also an M8 motion co-processor. Apple has also added a new fully laminated display with antireflective coating. Because of that, it’s 56% less reflective.
This year the iPad Air 2 comes in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. It’s also available in 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB. The new iPad will be available for pre-order tomorrow, or available for in-store pickup next week. For those wanting the first iPad Air, Apple is still selling that, with a $100 price drop.
